Building Foundations

"Foundations" for mental well-being include: Sense-of-Self and Identity; Life Meaning and Purpose; Emotional Maturity; and Connections (to self, others, nature/environment, and whatever you consider 'spiritual').

Such foundations promote healing, growth and transformation for greater self-belief and personal efficacy in addressing issues (vs willpower-driven-behavioural-change, strategic approaches, and over-reliance on medication).

Foundations in Relationships - means they

 are more than "compatibility" and "better communication skills". 

More than negotiation, diplomacy and the exchange of favours. 

Healthy relationships are about deep awareness (of self and others), intimacy, connectedness and mutual development: which in turn drives what (and how) you communicate, and how you behave (spontaneously and genuinely). 

They're about nurturing your true self while growing closer to others.

My Blog 

Feel free to view a resources library from a Meetup Group I ran. It's a growing document of links to podcasts, video talks, webpages and documents.


"Alex has been a tremendous help to me. In one of the toughest times I had been through Alex was able to provide insightful advice and resources that have guided me in a positive direction. He exudes patience, understanding and true compassion in each session. I am incredibly grateful for what I've learned in coping with difficult situations. Thank you Alex for giving me the ability to find happiness again when I didn't think I could."


"Alex is a warm and sensitive man who also happens to know what he is talking about. Thank you for your acceptance and caring, you have been a big part of my healing and I can never thank you enough."

"Suncare Community Services had the pleasure of engaging AMWCounselling, to conduct a series of workshops for carers.  The topics offered by Alex provided carers with tools that encouraged them to change negative feelings to positive ones and promote better emotional health for both the carer and the person they care for.  The carers felt Alex was approachable, he encouraged the group to work together and they felt valued and important.  Thank you Alex for a wonderful series of workshops that connected with our clients."

I'm a Masters qualified Counsellor running a private practice and working part-time in post-suicide support. In general I see counselling as a collaborative process to develop strategies, knowledge and skills for immediate concerns and future goals. A process that's less about 'fixing' and more about personal healing, transformation and flourishing. 

I work to match progressive psychotherapy and research-based wisdom to client's unique characteristics, strengths and situation. My diverse work/life experiences and qualifications support an informed, pragmatic and sensitive approach.

Practically, this means a client-centred approach that integrates models of therapy (such as CBT, Psycho-education, Existential Therapy, Solution-Oriented and other Interpersonal therapies). My areas of therapeutic focus include:
  • Individual Therapy for:   
    • Childhood Neglect, Abuse & Trauma
    • Grief & Loss
    • Depression, Fear and Anxiety
    • Loneliness
    • Relationship Issues
    • Sex, Sexuality and Intimacy Struggles
    • Stress & Anger
    • Addiction or Substance Abuse issues
    • Personal Growth & Development
    • Life-Meaning and Spiritual explorations

What's wrong with me?

A question we often ask ourselves, especially when things go wrong. The short answer however is nothing! As Michael White puts it:

“The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.”

My aim is to support you in addressing the problem.
